Genvoya and Magnesium Citrate, Calm
« on: March 28, 2022, 12:49:16 am »
I take Magnesium every night before I go to bed. I take Calm which is 100% natural water-soluble magnesium citrate. It helps me with anxiety, dizziness, and a bunch of other aspects of magnesium depletion.

Reading the Genvoya PDF the other day I just learned that I should not take it because it might affect how I absorb my HIV meds. None of my doctors have ever told me that.
Never. Are they aware that I take Calm? Yes, they are.

I don't know how to proceed. Should I stop? Any thoughts?

I just did a quick check on drugs.com for interactions, it didn't come back with any. I would just separate the time I take them by a few hours if I was you.

I take magnesium at night too occasionally plus other vitamins. The pharmacist at my ID Clinic said to leave at least 6 hours between hiv medication time & vitamin time. So I take meds in morning & vit at night.

Sorry to sound obvious, but have you spoken with your doctor? That is where I would start.
